Can't answer. I saw him back in mid-80s and he was pretty damn good. I'm sure for that show he just showed up, got the cash in hand, told the band - who he had not met before going on stage - to follow his lead. There was a great article and long interview in a recent issue of rolling stone with him. 83 and still playing every week in St. Louis. He and Jerry Lee Lewis still doing it. Kind of puts some other artists in perspective if the architects are still doing it.

It's more like once a month in St. Louis, always at a really small venue that he owns, it always sells out quick EVERY time. It's more of a bar/restaurant with a concert venue in the basement and another sortof venue upstairs. Decent enough place, though I haven't been there since Kimock played there in 2004. Ever since I was a teenager I said one of my goals in life was to see Chuck at least once in my lifetime. The shows were always 21+ so I said once I turned 21 I'd go. It's been over 10 years and I still haven't made a show yet. I'll do it someday, assuming he lives to be like 110.
